Reviews

1 x 75:00 min Sit back and enjoy the great days of yesteryear as this incredible DVD guides us through the mystical era of the Music Hall. Presented by Lionel Blair, we trace the origins of the Music Hall right back to the days of the riotous Bartholomew Fayres of the Middle Ages through to the performers of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens of the 19th Century.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a lot better 3 Nov 2008
By F. B.
Format:DVD
This DVD is described as "gathers together incredible archive footage from the era, much of it never before seen, and intersperses the footage with old recordings, memorabilia and in-depth discussions from the world's foremost Music Hall authority, Peter Gammond."

If that was the case it would be a great DVD.

It isn't. Because there are not enough clips, just Peter Gammond and Lionel Blair talking to camera.

Very disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Music Hall Days D.V.D Lionel Blair 4 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a little disappointed with my purchase ,due to the fact that I was wanting to do some research on the way a Music Hall programme was presented . What I got was a Documentary on the history of Music Hall entertainment . However , I did learn a lot from watching it . Perhaps , hidden away in your Archives ,you may have a D.V.D., of a performance ,or two , of an evening at a Music Hall . My research tells me that it would be either a "Sachs' ( I think that was the name of the Chairman ) or the Leeds Music Hall . Please advise as I would definitely be interested in purchasing a copy
Cheers from Australia

3.0 out of 5 stars Music Hall Days 15 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Interesting for what it was but I was looking for nonstop genuine performance. The actual ambiance of the hall would be nice. So little of this material is retained.
